In its metamorphosis from blog to book, this essay collection by former journalist Gerald Karey is something to savor. Reporting, ruminating, and sometimes ranting with insight and wit, Karey covers Colonial America and 1950s Brooklyn, the sins of the oil industry and getting older, the Civil War and World War II. The book is titled Unhinged, but the author has it very much together.
